COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Who knows what inspired the ancients to build Stonehenge--or what inspired us to build Hop Henge in its likeness. But build it we did, out of wrapped bales of whole-flower hops out on the brewery lawn. Like the rest of the Bond Street Series, Hop Henge highlights the creativity and curiousity of our brewers. Bolder than its English ancestors, with huge hops and a bitter finish, this IPA is no wallflower.

NOTE: This is the original version. In 2007 it was bumped up to an IIPA. See that entry <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/deschutes-hop-henge-imperial-ipa/68396/>here.

Draft. About as aromatically wonderful as it can be, with big notes of peach and some caramel malts that keep the aroma from being too high-register. Dense, dense lace. Wow-level. Flavors follow the nose with a big burst of peach, then maybe something meatier to balance it out -- a malt profile I couldn?t quite identify -- and then a very fast, bitter finish that goes dry quickly. Really wonderful.

2/22/15 from bomber dated 4/08/15. . Cloudy with one finger head. Excellent aroma. Pretty well balanced. Reminds me of Pliny the Elder but slightly maltier. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Murky gold, with a fluffy white head. Aroma is lost to my stuffed sinuses. Taste is pineapple/tropical fruit and citrus hops, with a great balanced sweetness. That combines to make this seem "juicy", which I love. Well carbonated, but not in a bubbles popping-off-in-your-mouth way, but in a "fluffy" kind of way (it’s all I can think of right now). Seems to lean more toward a DIPA than a regular IPA. Very, very good, and really easy to drink.

9.5% and it smells like it. Orange marmalade nose, candied orange, mint. Delicately balanced, big and smooth. No alcohol taste that you get from the nose. Melon and tropical fruits. Man this is good! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(I remember this being closer to 8% but lower than the next version). Anyway...not a standout for a double IPa THOUGH STILL quite nice. huge body and great mouthfeel, hop aroma and flavor popping juuuust a little less.

Another winner from Deschutes. 2014 experimental addition. Pours cloudy pale amber. Smaller head and less lacing. Smells of sweet malts, mango and cypress. Taste is malt forward with a pine middle and ending with floral hop bitterness. Nice balance and a hop head fan favorite ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
